Recently Digital Zoetrope Productions produced an Annual Report video for the Intersil corporation. The video is designed to inform the public of the company’s successes and direction for the upcoming year. To create the video, we used a mixture of live action footage, still photos and motion graphics. The project was done almost exclusively in Adobe After Effects CC 2014, with each scene as an individual composition that was then sewn together in Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2014. We then added the music and voice over.
Recently, Digital Zoetrope Productions completed a corporate video for Melbourne, FL based semi-conductor company Intersil about their involvement on NASA’s Orion program. The video details how Intersil had several integrated circuits (ICs) in the Command Module on the Orion spacecraft.
The video was shot at Intersil’s Palm Bay, FL based facility where they make radiation hardened ICs. It was shot primarily with our 4k Sony F5 Cinealta camera package. We also utilized our Canon 60D DSLR package as a “B” camera. In addition to several interviews, we also filmed several scenes inside Intersil’s clean room facilities where they fabricate and test the ICs.
This project is one of many video productions that Digital Zoetrope has done for Intersil, but it certainly was one of their more interesting projects to work on. Not only was it a challenge to film in a clean room environment, but it was also a pleasure to work on a project that has to do with our nation’s space agency. The Orion project, with it’s eventual planned mission to Mars, is the United States’ next generation of space craft that will continue our country’s space exploration program.
